promises, but over obama care forcing people to buy coverage they don't need, like maternity care. well, man up, says a topop demoat in the senate. >> somebody sai well, gee, now i've got -- i have to take this policy that covers mernity care. but my wife and i aren't having any more children. and i got to thinking about that. i thought, well, you know what? maybe because my wife and i don't have any more children, and they're grown up, maybe shouldn't have to pay property taxes to pay for my local schools. we're better than that in this country. we're talking about being a part of our society. sameay with health car it is a lue system. >> so what do you think? is he right? buying medical care you don't need is part of america's value system? hi, everyone. i'm brenda buttner. this is "bulls and bears." and here they are, the bulls and bears this week. ry b. smith, tracy byrnes, jonas max ferris, john layfield, and david mercer. john, paying for maternity care or other coverage you don't need is all part of america's value system? >> not part of the america i understand. it's part of a s
into the depression. >> jim, you don't necessarily agree, getting to single payer is not necessarily a bad thing according to you. >> no, brenda, it's not but as to the folks who are living or think they're living in an episode of "the x files" that was not the plan all along. i mean, there couldn't be more space in between obama care and the single payer health care system. look, we have single payer health care already in this country, it's called medicare. and guess what? medicare has a higher approval rating than all private health insurance. >> well tracy, what about obama care, the approval ratings are just going down like that. what do you think, are we headed to a single payer system? >> god, i hope not, brenda. look, i don't think it's conspiratorial. i think they were just kind of dumb. they didn't read it. they had no idea what they passed. it was incompetence left to right, down to the web side. single payer system would be so bad for this country. i get the notion that we have to sort of get some preventative care out there and things like that but the way that they're talking about
in their purse strings but it's all about expectations. if they're worried and confidence goes down, they don't spend. >> exactly, brenda. i disagree with you on one point. i don't think it is hard to quantify. in the most recent "forbes" study, in 49 stat the average premium is expected to go up 41%. so if you've gotten a letter like i have from blue cross/blue shield, it's easy to find out what your new premiums are going to be. if you're one of the six or seven people fortunate enough to log on to health care.cgov, you know your new premium. if you're using a state exchange up and running or the one in d.c., you know what your premiums are going to be. you're getting sticker shock. you may not have start paying premiums right away, i don't have to start paying for a w months, but it's right there in front of you. and, for example, in my case i know that over the course of the year my premium is going to go up $2,000 to $3,000. for a lot of families they're going to go, whoa, i've got to pay another $2,000, $3,000 next year? i tell you what, i have a bare bones policy. for a lot of people
missed it he cursed in a reporter's face. >> if you don't have everything that's when you get to be mean to everybody. >>> tomorrow, strange but true health tips like skip that anti-bacterial soap. >> i knew that, that's true. >>> adding is all up, enrollment numbers disappointing, the number of cancellations growing. premiums rising. the health care site still embarrassing, and as the apologies keep on coming some influential democrats now calling for a single payer system, which is leading some to ask was the health care law designed to fail all along to force the need for government-run care for all? hi, everyone. i'm brenda but tner. gary smith, tracy burns, john layfield along with jamou green. lots of folks complaining this health care thing isn't going as planned. gary you say it's going exactly as planned. what do you mean? >> i do. i think they want to get to the point where government controls everything, aka the single payer system where government is in charge of all of health care. you saw that little clip that john podesta pointed out like medicare is for a single payer sys
their health insurance in the next two months because of the year end, i think we'd know about it by now. i don't buy this at all. the cost of premiums was rising so dramatically from 11% to 24%. we are finally bending the cost cutters here. and we have seen this year costs for health care going up by the least amount in 50 years. i know as a small business owner, i get my plan dropped all the time. three times out of the last five years when i have go to re-up my plan, it's not been available. i've had to change it and unfortunately to a plan with lower benefits and higher premiums. this is finally going to change this. >> john, is it going to make it better as bernard says? >> no. it's not going to make it better. this fallacy -- and it is another fallacy. have you to understand these guys have spun this magnificent tale. we have been sold a bill of goods. they talk about premiums coming down. they started coming down in '09, before obama care ever kicked in. it has to do with the recession. studies have shown that over 80% of it has to do with the recession, not with anhing to do with obama
. politicians don't care. they just want to get re-elected. private guys have got to get re-elected. this was not about wages. this was simply about relevancy and a meal ticket that these union helpeds know they're losing if this trend continues. >> david, what was this protest all about in your view? >> this protest was about the american working family earning a living decent wage. and i think that labor sees what we should all see, which is a new trend line, where you have massachusetts, california, maryland, new jersey and others taking the steps to finally raise the minimum wage and, in addition, you even have 69% of the public, the american public, according to a new cbs poll, saying they support an increase in the minimum wage. and so you see the labor movement getting behind, with the american people and with the american family to come up with a decent working and livable wage. >> most of the walmart employees make more than the minimum wage. >> the irony is, they weren't even out protesting. half of those protesters don't even work at walmart. they're just all part
